The oak is integrated but still present in this wine and, along with the fruit, offers dark pastel

article from Vinothèque (Japan), Mitsuhiko Terashita - february 2020 - 02/2020

La Madone 2017: mainly composed of Grenache, notes of violet, white pepper and purple plum condense around a solid attack on the palate.

This month, Revue du Vin de France publishes in an article, by Pierre Citerne, about the tasting that we organized on April 15 at the Montirat estate.
